Stuff That Happened


Thank you for the beautiful computer!!!
 I can't thank you know who you are enough for all the care and hard work! 


Happy Mother's Day to me and all our dear Mothers.

Happy Mother's Day Kathleen!!!
I'll call you tomorrow.
Love You!!!


Here are some of the things that happened during the five weeks my computer was getting rebuilt:


Drapes!
I hung drapes... sheers on a rod,
drapes on a tension rod inside the window.
When I was a child I was taught that sheers were to be hung against the window and the drapes were to be hung over them and were to puddle on the floor. Well, no puddling here. I love these sheers and their embroidery is so pretty and delicate. Sooo, I hung them up this way so I can see them all the time. I'm so bad. I love breaking the rules.


Kristine made up Easter decorations
that children at the libraries could put together.
I love crafty stuff!
Those cotton ball bunnies are so cute!


Snow?


Yep! Snow in April.
It was April 14th and the rain turned to snow.
Cold!
We are not supposed to get freezes after May, but we remember snow in June a few years ago. So, I am very unsure about planting the garden until late May. Sure doesn't leave much of a growing season.


I love making ginger tea. The only down side is peeling the ginger root. My latest ploy is to use a spoon to scrape off the peel and then cut the root in large pieces, and then chuck it all in a freezer bag and freeze the lot. When I want ginger for tea I take a piece out and use a microplane and grate it into a cup and then add hot water, lemon and honey. So good. Makes me sweat though if I drink too much. Sweat? Uhhh... glow? Some people grate the ginger up all at once and freeze it ready to use.

My latest trick with the ginger is to add some to ginger ale and put it in the fridge to sit overnight. Wow... tastes so good... instead of a sugar water flavor there is a real ginger beer flavor. The best ginger ale I have tasted is from Australia... and hard to find.

Computer news: Everything works wonderfully on the computer! It is all brand new and up to date! Fast and a dream!!! Only one little glitch... the old power cord doesn't have the correct connector for the sound. Kristine is going to see about getting a new cord or adaptor tomorrow.

Well, this is enough news for today... more tomorrow.

Welcome back to Bloggerville! Your ginger tea sounds yummy and I just might have to try adding it to ginger ale!

Wow! I can't believe you're still getting snow. Course there's a lot of crazy weather out there. Hopefully, you will be able to get your garden planted soon!
